Which they do:
Apple juice, mango puree, pineapple juice, banana puree, kiwifruit puree, green machine mix (spirulina, chorella, broccoli, green tea extract, spinach, barley grass, wheat grass, blue green algae, echinacea, purpurea extract, odorless garlic), natural flavorPlus the famous "natural flavor" at the end. It bothers me that they don't have to get specific on what that really means.
VegSource.com defines it as:
The exact definition of natural flavorings & flavors from Title 21, Section 101, part 22 of the Code of Federal Regulations is as follows:So I set out to make my own rendition of this frothy, sweet drink. We invested in something called the Ninja (Awesome food processor/blender thing) and have been drinking smoothies all week!
"The term natural flavor or natural flavoring means the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof, whose significant function in food is flavoring rather than nutritional."
In other words, natural flavors can be pretty much anything approved for use in food.
You basically just throw whole pieces of whatever fruit or vegetables you have laying around (And that you think would make a tasty combo) and puree away. This time I chose a tangerine, kiwi, spinach, and mango.
